34 km ( 21.12 miles) @ -4°F. A 4x speed video of a night ride to a rehearsal (doing sound) and even though my destination was 1/2 a mile away, I took the scenic route. I started from the golf course parking lot and made a loop around the perimeter of the university.

Thanks for watching though they are on the boring side. Just enough to satisfy the requirements of the Polar Bear Challenge. All of the other participants use it as a vlogging platform and talk during the video. I need to power the GoPro during the ride or the batteries only last a short time so no external microphone. Plus, I'd have to think of something to talk about.
137 km (85.13 miles) @ +13°F. Started from the Ballaine Lake turnout then stopped to mess around with the GoPro trying to get the remote to connect. So jump right into the time-lapse of Sheep Creek Rd, Goldstream Rd, Steese Expy, Steele Creek Rd, Chena Hot Springs Rd, Nordale Rd, Badger Rd, Richardson Hwy, Mitchell Expy, Parks Hwy and ending up at the same turnout where I messed around with the GoPro originally. Nice day for a ride though the roads still have a sheen of ice...
20 km (12.4 miles) @ +14°F. A short trip into my office via a bit more scenic route. I prefer riding through the smaller roads around town at least when it's not really dark as it's easier to spot wildlife wandering around on the road.
14km (8.7 miles) @ +13°F. A really short ride today but was surprised that I was even able to get one in considering the above freezing temperature last night. I didn't really feel like going far considering how slick the roads were today.
102 km (63.4 miles) @ +20°F. A wander-around ride. Don't know where to go. Rode through downtown Fairbanks before heading out on the highway to North Pole. Went by the Santa Claus house and looked at some of their ice carvings before heading back to Fairbanks. The first three minutes are the same old thing and the last minute and a half is time-lapse at one frame per second.
87 km (54 miles) @ +23°F. A light snow messed up the initial part of the video. The last minute or so is a time-lapse (1 frame per sec) of Goldstream Rd, Steese Hwy, the back road to Chena Hot Springs Rd and the couple miles of CHSR.
